Is Angelina Jolie Too Important To Hang Out With President Obama?
One sources tells PopEater that Angie snubbed this weekend's star-studded White House Correspondents Dinner because she would "rather spend her time helping those who really need it rather than sitting, drinking champagne and laughing at bad jokes in a fancy DC ballroom." Yeah, that sounds rough.
Angelina is currently in Venice filming The Tourist with Johnny Depp, but the source says that the film wasn't the reason she attended that that she "always refuses" attending the event.
The source continues, "Angie doesn't judge other celebrities for wanting to rub shoulders with President Obama [...] It's just she is just someone who thinks your actions are more important than words."
While we can understand that Angie may not want to attend the event because she would rather be spending her time helping people, we don't remember hearing anything about her, say, flying to the Gulf Coast this weekend to help clean up the oil spill or anything.
Then again, maybe Angie was just tired from filming and wanted to spend some time with her kids instead of flying to DC.
